Trackrick is getting married this Saturday. I haven't met the bride-to-be yet, but I've heard good things and she makes Trackrick very happy. The pictures are of my grandparents, Wilmer and Bernice. There are plenty of lovey-dovey pics from their courtship and newlywed days. Their poses got a little more formal as they aged, but they were always affectionate and loving. They made up sillly private nicknames for everyone. They called each other Butch and Murph, but we can never remember who was who. They went everywhere together. They square-danced, camped, traveled, played pinochle and were involved with their church. They taught me to love camping, card games, singing on car trips and tried to teach me to save my money.
I was going to scan in their formal wedding picture and one from their 50 year anniversary party. But these are more cozy and real.
I wish Trackrick and his bride all the luck and love in the world. Tomorrow is the wedding, the birth of their marriage, may it be a long and blessed union.
